Description

Our first stop will be the Nova Scotia Highland Village Museum, a living history museum and culture center that celebrates the Gaelic experience in Nova Scotia. The site features Gaelic language and related cultural activities, traditional crafts and chores, costumed animators, farm animals, thousands of artifacts and 11 period buildings.

Next it's time to go through the scenic center of Cape Breton Island, touring to Estmere and then onto the Little Narrows Ferry (cable ferry less than a 2 minute ride), our gateway to the Trans Canada Highway.

Next we'll make a brief stop at Baddeck Village with time for walking along the waterfront.

A Gaelic welcome to the "Highland Heart of Nova Scotia" awaits you in Iona, Cape Breton Island. Experience Nova Scotia's Gaelic culture at one of many community events or at the Highland Village outdoor pioneer museum. View some of the most breathtaking scenery that this Province has to offer on the shores of the mighty Bras d'Or.

Next we will continue to the Iona Peninsula, located in the center of Cape Breton Island, almost completely surrounded by the magnificent Bras d'Or Lakes - Canada's Only Inland Sea. The Bras d'Or is a basin that is one of the finest sailing and boating venues in the world. They separate Cape Breton's Highlands and Lowlands. The Bras d'Or coastline abounds with wildlife and is particularly noted as a breeding area of the magnificent bald eagle.

Finally we have a stop at Alexander Graham Bell's museum. This national historic site communicates the story of Alexander Graham Bell's wide ranging interests and inventive work, much of it undertaken here at Baddeck, Nova Scotia. The site overlooks Baddeck Bay, on Bras d' Or Lake, and Beinn Bhreagh, Bell's summer home, where Bell pursued much of his scientific work.

Later back to the pier.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
